BBQ Lamb KL Kemensah - A Back To Nature Dining Experience


Last week, my family and I enjoyed a unique and delicious dinner, dining at BBQ Lamb Kemensah, Kuala Lumpur. The road leading to this place was narrow so I drove carefully. BBQ Lamb Kemensah is situated at Jalan Taman Zooview, behind Zoo Negara. Dining here was a totally different back to nature experience and I could smell the cool, fresh air as I got down from my car. My children wanted to dine in the river but due to the heavy rain a few hours before we arrived, the river was flowing very fast and we dined at the tables along the river instead.

On normal days without heavy rain, the photo below shows how customers dine in the river. We would love to come back again to try dining in the river.

My family was very happy to try the delicious mixed meat set meant for 4 persons. This set is very reasonably priced at RM 150 and includes salad, fruit, desert, soup, free flow of drinks, rice and 4 types of delicious BBQ mixed meat with 4 different types of sauce. This place also serves seafood set for those who love seafood.



It was my family's first time dining here and we really enjoyed listening to the flow of the river, the sounds of insects, the cool wind blowing onto our face and all the back to nature feel. 

When the food came, we were all very excited to try. My parents, children and I were surprised the food tasted very delicious. We have never tasted such nice, tender, delicious BBQ meat before. 


Tender beef, smoked duck, grilled lamb and chicken were all so tasty and delicious. 


Dessert was not too sweet and I loved it. There were small pieces of crunchy, green apples and jelly. 

My family and I really enjoyed a unique back to nature dining experience which was unforgettable. The environment was so cozy and the food was one of the best we have ever had. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends.

SHOPEE ANSWERS CALL TO LOWER COST OF LIVING WITH 9.9 SUPER SHOPPING DAY


Over the past year, the Government has rolled out a number of initiatives to reduce the cost of living
in Malaysia. Its recent initiative is the establishment of the National Action Committee on ecommerce
by the National Cost of Living Action Council. The aim is to promote and strengthen the
use of e-commerce, thereby eliminating the role of middlemen in a bid to lower the cost of consumer
goods.

In view of this, the Government has been engaging closely with Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, on how it can best alleviate the rising cost of living for
Malaysians. One of Shopee’s efforts is to work alongside Malaysian retailers by lowering the barrier
of entry to the digital economy. Additionally, the cost of operating a business online is much lower. In
turn, Shopee encourages retailers to share their cost savings with shoppers, thereby making online
shopping more affordable for consumers. As a result, consumers see themselves saving an average
of 20% on their daily necessities when they shop on Shopee on a regular day, with the potential to
save up to 90% during major shopping events like 9.9 Super Shopping Day. 

Taking place from 19 August to 9 September 2019, the campaign offers greater deals and
discounts across categories from brands such as Nutox, HP, L'Oréal, Vinda, Photobook Malaysia,
Enfagrow, Universal Traveller, realme, MR DIY and Nestle. To further promote the adoption of e
commerce and encourage Malaysians to take advantage of these savings, Shopee is bringing down
the minimum spend for free shipping to RM9.

Welcoming the initiative, Song Hock Koon, Director of E-Commerce, Malaysia Digital Economy
Corporation, said, “One of MDEC’s objectives is to encourage Malaysians to become immersed in
the digital ecosystem, as such initiatives like these will help accelerate adoption in a sustainable and
cost-effective manner. We are always pleased to collaborate and support industry moves and trust
that this latest initiative will further inspire digital entrepreneurship efforts.”

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee said, “Shopee’s mission has always been to impact
local communities on a meaningful and sustainable level through initiatives such as our sales
campaigns that will allow Malaysians to continue shopping and stocking up on necessities without
breaking the bank. At the same time, I am happy to announce Shopee’s partnership with our latest
brand ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo. Having him on board is truly a milestone for us. This makes
us more than just a shopping platform as we continue to inspire users and connect them with the
biggest stars and celebrities in the world.”

At the launch of 9.9 Super Shopping Day held at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Shopee revealed its
newest brand ambassador, Cristiano Ronaldo. As one of the greatest athletes, he is an inspiration
to many and his dedication to football resonates with the deep commitment Shopee has towards its
users. He will be working with Shopee across its seven markets in a wide range of activities to
engage and inspire people in the region. 

The 9.9 Super Shopping Day will feature three weeks of super promotions and entertainment as well
as exclusive privileges with leading industry players:
Shocking Sale - 9 times daily, enjoy deals from as low as RM1. 
RM9.90 Super Voucher Pack - Pay RM9.90 to enjoy vouchers from Shopee, Agoda, dahmakan,

Mid-Autumn season is near when you see lanterns and mooncakes in shopping malls. It is the season for gatherings with family and friends. Every year, Cheras LeisureMall has an array of activities that centre on cultural and heritage preservation to create fond memories for shoppers.

The lanterns submitted must be no smaller than 4’ x 2’ x 4’ and made using at least one recyclable or eco-friendly material. The prizes for this contest, which are worth up to RM50,000, comprise of cash prizes as well as Cheras LeisureMall and OSIM cash vouchers.


These entries will be judged by a panel of illustrious judges at the launching ceremony based on creativity, craftsmanship and final finishing, lighting effect, eco-friendly aspect, material selection, theme proximity, and overall presentation of the lantern.

Mr. Subramaniam Apparow, Senior Manager (Property Division), PPB Group Berhad said, “The Mid-Autumn festival is one of the key festivals celebrated at Cheras LeisureMall as it beautifully symbolises family reunion and artistic tradition. This resonates with the company’s commitment in fostering a tight-knitted relationship with the community through the organisation of cultural activities.

With the aim of preserving traditional heritages, we have been continuously organising lantern-making competitions since the 1990s. This is done in an effort to educate and pass on this time-honoured Chinese traditional handicraft to the future generation as lantern-making actually requires great skill and craftsmanship. 

We would like to express our heartfelt appreciation to all the participants for their consistent enthusiasm in preserving this lantern-making heritage throughout the years. We are also glad that each year we see an increase in new participants which goes to show that our efforts are garnering more and more interest by the year.”

Lennox Collagen Baking Workshop At ABC Cooking Studio


I was very excited and happy to attend the Lennox Collagen Baking Workshop organized by The Butterfly Project at ABC Cooking Studio. All the beauty bloggers came dressed in beautiful pink color. 



The month of August 2019 is the Lennox Collagen Month and their tagline is "Love Your Skin". There are lots of discounts and crazy sales online and at pharmacies this month. 



Even though we live a hectic lifestyle, we should not forget to take good care of our skin and be healthy and beautiful naturally. 



Collagen is the main structural protein in the extracellular space in the various connective tissues in the body. As I age, my skin is getting dryer and have wrinkles due to stress, exposure to sun light and not eating balanced food. That is the reason why Lennox Collagen strive to produce nutritional supplements of the highest quality to meet health and beauty requirements. Backed by continuous research and development, all of Lennox products are made using natural, organic and carefully selected ingredients that are scientifically proven to be safe and effective. Lennox uses aqueous marine collagen, which is 100% water soluble and has a low molecular weight for better digestibility. Compared to conventional collagen, Lennox collagen has a shorter bond structure that dissolves readily and is absorbed more easily by the body.

Lennox has 5 different collagen products. 

1. Lennox Firm Up+ has whitening essence and can protect skin from UV rays. The addition of CoQ10 and Grape Seed Extract, a strong antioxidant, help protect skin from damaging UV rays that may cause aging.The powder is to be added to the drink right before consuming. The antioxidants we use are in powder form because we know that antioxidants in liquid form are easily oxidized even if they remain sealed and unopened. This is best if consumed at night because that is the best time for absorption by our body. For new starters, it is recommended to take 1 bottle everynight for 10 days and 1 bottle every 2 nights after. It tasted sweet, sour and slightly bitter because of the CoQ10 and Grape Seed Extract.



2. Lennox FirmUp+ Men is specially formulated for men because men have 15%-20% thicker skin than women and drinking health drinks will be more effective than applying skincare products. Fortified with Cactus Extract & Maritime Pine Bark extract, it helps reduce excessive oil secretion and keeps skin feeling hydrated. This is good for men who have oily skin.


3. Lennox FirmUp+ Forte Gold is great for maintaining hydration with Ceramide hold skin cells together, forming a protective layer that plumps the skin and holds moisture. This is suitable for me because it can slow down my aging process. The taste is a little sweet, sour without any bitter taste and I really like it.


4. Lennox FirmUp+ EX is for whitening and hydrationPacked with antioxidants such as sakura essence extract and grape seed extract to fight free radicals, skin is protected from signs of aging. Sakura essence possesses whitening properties that help to lighten uneven skin pigmentation caused by UV rays. Apple stem cells are introduced to renew and repair skin cells to allow skin to be youthful and supple.



5. Lennox Collagen 5000 is made from high quality fish collagen peptide originated
from Japan that dissolves readily in any beverage or food. It is in the powder form and is low calorie & easily absorbed by the body. 



Berry Souffle Cheese Baking Session

The beauty bloggers were all very excited when it was time to bake the Berry Souffle Cheese. We were divided into groups of 4 and 5. Each of us were given the recipe and ingredients and were guided step by step on how to bake.


I had a lot of fun mixing the ingredients using the hand mixer.



There was 1 instructor at every table to teach and guide us step by step. The Berry Souffle Cheese was fun and easy to bake. We prepared the Souffle Cheesecake first. While they were in the oven, we made the Berry Cheese Cream and decorated them.



My final baked Berry Souffle Cheese tasted very moist and delicious! Recipe is as attached photo. If you have time, try to bake it too.



Check out my youtube video on my Lennox Collagen Baking Workshop experience.
